It has been written that she is of half Korean descent, while others say she that is of fully Japanese ancestry. Kimora has said that her mother is of fully Japanese descent, and was a war refugee who moved to Korea.

Kimora is married to banker Tim Leissner, with whom she has a son. She also has two children with her former husband, record producer Russell Simmons, and a son with her former partner, actor and model Djimon Hounsou.

I feel so bad for one of her daughters. She’s ugly as sin, meanwhile her other daughter is beautiful.
